The EQE vary is at present made up of the EQE 350+, EQE 350 4MATIC, EQE 500 4MATIC and AMG EQE, all of which use the identical 90.6-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack. The AMG has the identical dual-motor setup because the all-wheel-drive 4MATIC fashions, and it gives 617 hp and 701 lb-ft of torque; the aforementioned 677 hp is just delivered by way of a lift perform, which requires the battery be at the least 70% full.
Actually, the AMG EQE solely delivers its final energy whenever you drive in Sport+ mode. Use Consolation or Sport and the motors are detuned to 80% and 90% of their max thrust, respectively. Drive the AMG EQE in its Slippery mode, which is helpful for inclement climate, and the sedan is proscribed to half energy. Security first.
This would possibly seem to be a giant deal, however keep in mind: EVs are at all times fast. Nothing about launching the AMG EQE in Consolation mode will bum you out, and midrange punch is equally plentiful. Within the metropolis, on the freeway, or accelerating out of a nook on a quick mountain street, the AMG EQE scoots. It is a disgrace that you could activate Sport+ to benefit from the sedan’s full AMG-ness, however I suppose this stops you from quickly depleting the battery.
Talking of which, Mercedes-Benz says the AMG EQE can go so far as 225 miles on a full cost, and the automaker’s vary estimates are normally fairly indicative of real-world use. The EQE accepts DC quick charging at speeds as much as 170 kilowatts, which might take the battery from a ten% to 80% state of cost in simply over half-hour — assuming your Stage 3 public charger really works as marketed.
